Re: Basel Tattoo "Street" Parade 2010

I went to the Tattoo on Thursday night. It was fantastic! Can't believe how lucky we were with the weather - rain all afternoon and apparently also for the early performance but we were there at 10.00pm and after a few spots of rain it cleared up and we had a wonderfully dry evening! I'm a sucker for military and pipeband music (I'm Scottish!) so lapped up every minute. I love how they dish out those trendy little plastic macs, a great idea.

And yes, went to the parade yesterday too, and again was impressed that the weather-god got it right! Great crowds so lovely to see everyone in the swing of it.

Saw Bob from Boston pass by where I was standing on the bridge but too late for me to call out hi.

Re: Basel Tattoo "Street" Parade 2010

We looked in the Basler Zeitung and only found a tiny corner notice about the street parade. Too late to go and see. Pity, I have family over from overseas. Would have been nice for them.

Dunno how people find out about these things. Where do they advertise them? (not the Tatoo itself of course; just the "Street Parade")

not sure if the parade was in, but for "culture" in general I can recommend Thursday's Basler Zeitung covering all sorts of events, exhibitions, music etc up to wed the week after.

Adverts on trams (the A4 cards above the seats) are a good source of info in my case.

There's also the city's website: http://www.basel.com/en/welcome.cfm

Re: Basel Tattoo "Street" Parade 2010

This year's Parade is tomorrow, Saturday the 23rd

We'll be away so will miss it . We did get to see the tattoo which was fantastic but one thing was missing - Basel's own - The Amazing Top Secret Drummers. So I was gutted to find out that although they are not in the Tattoo they are in the Parade!!!
